Prime Time True Crime

Longtime friends and longer-time true crime junkies, Karah Franklin and Halley Homen mic up once a week for a long-distance happy hour and indulge each other with all the true crime goings-on that have intrigued them throughout the past week: news stories, court proceedings, documentaries, podcasts, Lifetime movies -- anything and everything and nothing in particular -- providing an always unpredictable combination of horrifying and humorous. "We talk about it because it's fascinating; we laugh because it's f-ed up."

It seems the doers of hideous-but-interesting crimes were all on vacation this week, leaving the girls with little new depravity to report. Instead, Halley brings you a couple updates on previously discussed criminals and tells you a tale of a Houston serial killer from the ’80’s-90’s and how the Governor brought him back to the … Continue reading Episode 20 – I’ll Give You One Guess

In the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy (which the girls address — briefly, solemnly, and matter-of-factly), Halley and Karah decided to steer clear of the ultra-horrific this week, focusing on the crime-adjacent: an eye-witness account of a Tulsa takedown, Colorado Springs still needs to take care of its s**t, and the Juice is loose … Continue reading Episode 18 – Why Aren’t the Adults Handling This?

Welcome to the “live-ish” episode! Life got in the way of the normal recording schedule, and left the girls with no time to edit, so they busted out a stopwatch and did their best to stay on track for an hour. Halley brings you updates on Kenneka Jenkins, the Mad Pooper of Colorado, a 27-year-old … Continue reading Episode 17 – Just Send Me a Card

This week is sidebar city — including a comically macabre detour, where Karah writes her own unconventional epitaph and Halley plans her own extravagant funeral — but the girls do discuss some true crimes, and of the most bizarre variety: the Mad Pooper of Colorado, a Dad-prank that went terrifyingly wrong, and the sad, strange … Continue reading Episode 16 – Write Your Own Epitaph

This week, the girls flip the script — Karah takes over On the Docket with tales of cults and Katanas and the tragic case of Holly Bobo, and Halley struggles to calm her voice (and blood pressure) as she goes full Nancy Grace on the recent arrest of fellow Amarillo native, Katie Layne Quackenbush. Holly … Continue reading Episode 15 – Time Flies When You’re In a Cult!

This episode will probably leave you with more questions than answers… Like, how much Odor Eaters does it take to cover up “rotting body”? How does a kindergartner navigate an intersection? Does Cosmo Dinardo not understand what Facebook is for? How can you own up to eight felonies, but not admit to being fired? And … Continue reading Episode 9 – Did Nobody Swipe Right?

Meanwhile, Halley refuses to admit she was wrong about Alexa, is still obsessed with Uber crimes, and of course, can’t resist talking about OJ. Oh, also: meth-heads doing meth-heady things.

90% laughter, 10% profanity… Halley and Karah really let down their hair this week. Struggling to push through vacation blues and not ready to face the world’s depravity, the girls stick to the lighter side of true crime — an all-night prison riot, the “Groundhog Day” of trials, and a lot of entertainment news: a … Continue reading Episode 6 – Iffy is All We’ve Got

Pretty much every week, Halley tries to sneak in just ONE more story than there is time for. Ipso facto, every week, Karah has to cut a story prior to publishing. Since the girls are on vacay this week, feast your ears on a minisode mashup of what DIDN’T make it into the first four … Continue reading Episode 5 – BONUS EPISODE: From the Cutting Room Floor

This week, the girls get philosophical AND actually do some research! They tackle the devastating disappearance of Kaytlynn Cargill (and what an AMBER Alert is and isn’t) and try to sandwich that heaviness with hilarity: yet another toe thief, the Cruella deVil of Great Danes, and Halley (poorly) impersonating her mom. ALSO: Karah updates us … Continue reading Episode 4 – Not THAT Tina Fey

Join Halley and Karah this week as they fall in love with a heroic hottie, learn what “El Chapo” means (and where he is now), and get a little bit jealous of a (foiled) murder-for-hire plot.

This week, Karah digs into the controversial case of Michelle Carter (and her eyebrows), Halley reports on the Cosby special as if she watched it on Quaaludes, Convicted leaves the girls unc-c-convinced, and Halley gets lured down a rabbit hole by Summer Santa.
